Are Missing Teeth Causing you to Miss Out?
Having missing teeth not only detracts from your appearance, it changes the functionality of your mouth, making it more difficult to enjoy your favorite foods. Just as important, when a tooth or teeth are missing, the jawbone beneath the missing tooth gradually breaks down without proper stimulation. This can alter facial structure and make you look years older than you are. Additionally, as your gums recede, the teeth adjacent to the gap become exposed to more instances of decay and can even begin shifting into the missing tooth space.
If you’re missing teeth, dental implants are the go-to procedure to restore your smile. Dental implants look, feel and function like natural teeth and can restore your ability to eat the foods you love while enhancing your appearance and self-esteem.
Why is John P. Freeman MD, DDS, FACS the Best Choice for Dental Implants?
Dr. Freeman has the distinction of being a board-certified surgeon in oral and facial plastic surgery. He has the training and experience to handle challenging cases that other dentists and oral surgeons may not feel comfortable with, including patients with bone loss and gum disease.
As a Fellow of the International Academy of Dental Implantology, American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons and the American College of Surgeons, he’s undergone rigorous evaluation and he meets the high standards of training and professionalism that it takes to earn this honorary designation. Additionally, as a member of the Academy of Osseointegration, American Academy of Implant Dentistry and the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, He is often called upon by other dentists to do dental bone grafts prior to dental implant surgery because of his high level of experience and training. Because of his advanced training, he has in-depth knowledge of facial and oral anatomy and considers a patient’s “whole face,” and how it functions when planning dental implant surgery.
Dr. Freeman uses advanced technology including an in-office CT scanner, a centrifuge for harvesting plasma rich protein and fibrin (PRP/PRF), a Piezosaw for bone harvesting, and fabrication of custom surgical guides for implant placement.
